We headed here for dinner following our afternoon golf game. If you want a nice casual dining experience with a beautiful sunset view, this place is perfect! Best coconut shrimp I've ever had and the portion is huge! Also, the Ahi tuna poke is delicious (my first Ahi experience). Our server was kind and prompt and the sunset view was the perfect end to our meal. Enjoy!

I really wanted to give a good review. Place is raucous fun, food was good and bartenders bust their butt.

BUT, while sitting at the bar I noticed the glassware. Factory windows in Cleveland aren't this filthy! I hope the attached photo will give the impression I had.

I wont be back.

I agree with most of these reviews. Get there an hour before sunset, dont expect quick service, order drinks and an app or 2, and watch the sunset. I would go again in a flash.

A lively place, good music, was too dark to enjoy the view. French fries are delish. For dinner I had the seared Ahi, it was great. My husband had the terriyaki steak, he said it was a bit too sweet for him. Had a bit of excitment when a Praying Mantis wanted to join our table of 10. Yikes... Service was not great.

I stayed nearby and once I discovered Lava Lava I ate there frequently. There was a good selection to chose from and lots of great specialty drinks. I loved the location - right on the water, the atmosphere - friendly & upbeat and the service - top shelf.
Whether you sit at a table outside or inside or at the bar, it's definitely "the place to be" !!
